    Several years ago I would have felt moved to tears, but had to hide them from myself as well as others and felt guilty for feeling so moved by something like this. Now however, I am moved to tears and feel no guilt whatsoever and say to this soldier 'Welcome home!'

    What caught me by surprise was my reaction to this video. I actually let out an "awwww" with a bit of emotional laughter and tears. I can't believe I felt that way over the video!

    Here's a similar one with a little girl.

    in response to the first video....

    poor kid. i'd hate to have that kind of emotional reunion in front of a crowd of people. that's the kind of situation where they needed to have a private converstation with eachother, not be broadcast to your school.

    it was not a good idea and dad realized it once the kid latched on to him. blake missing his father was a serious issue to blake. blake might have never seen his father again in his mind.

    dad should have never left in the first place.

    flame on.

    I guess you are one of those a..holes who has never felt the love of a father. Your comment is totally absurd. Do you know anything about family love or natural affection? Probably not!

    Most likely his father "had" to leave because of his military affiliation. He left so that a..holes like you can live free.

    Get a life,

    Happy Dad,

    The vids were nice, I got misty for the children. That being said, his dad does not make it so I can live free. No one has tried to invade the US and the best I can tell they would fail if they did (lots of guns to shoot anyone that tried)

    Our freedom is not conditional on soldiers fighting overseas. If that was how freedom was won there would be Afgani's shooting your neighobrs and occupying your house to win their freedom back in Afaganistan.

    Freedom is won at home not abroad. If you want to feel more free, fight for freedoms here.
